Fáilte - Welcome
to the Boyle Singers' circle - Ciorcal Amhránaíochta Mhainistir na Búille

Traditional unaccompanied singing, in English and Irish.

Dodd’s Crescent Bar (back room), The Crescent, Boyle, Co. Roscommon, Ireland.
The third Saturday of every month, all year around, 9.30pm onwards.

All singers and listeners welcome.

The 3rd Saturday night of May is fast approaching and once again, due to Covid19,  we are unable to hold our monthly singing session.  We really miss getting together and enjoying the singing, the storytelling etc. and look forward to the time in the not-too-distant future when we can resume those enjoyable sessions.  In the meantime we must all stay healthy and safe and keep singing.  Maybe we might even learn some new songs.


In light of the ongoing uncertainties around the spread of the Coronavirus, we feel the only way we can help protect visitors and the local community is by cancelling this year's gathering. We are genuinely saddened at having to do this but health is the most important issue in all of this. We hope that you all remain safe and well until we meet again in Inishowen...
Could we please ask you to share this post as widely as possible and contact anyone who you think may have intended travelling to the festival. Your heip would be very much appreciated.
The November singing session in Dodds, The Crescent Bar was most enjoyable with great song and fine stories.  Christine and Hugh did a lovely duet of that  wonderful carol Silent Night 1915.  George sang a great local song based on a true story" Willie Reilly and his fair Cailin Ban",  while Christy and Paraic gave us some fine traditional songs.  Helen sang about an eviction that had a happy ending.  Gene as usual told great stories which were enjoyed by all.
Our next singing session is on Dec. 21st. when to hope to have a special night with Songs, stories Christmas Carol etc.  All are welcome, - Singers, story tellers, and of course listeners. 
Congratulations and well done once again to The Frank Finn Traditional  Singing Weekend in Rosses Point. There were wonderful songs, singers and hilarious stories. The very warm welcome is a tribute to the great committee. Boyle Singers had a great night on the Friday night and are already looking forward to next years event. .
